I second that one.
I would like to add the "when are you going to have kids" people to the list. Seems like I get that every time I turn around lately (though less now that I am not in a relationship.)

How about Ms. I don't believe in bisexuals, I think they're just selfish?

Worked with one of those once. She stated loudly in the cafeteria that she thinks bisexuals just "want to have their cake and eat it too." (had to stifle a 'snork' when she said that bit) Her opinion was that bisexual people just didn't want to admit to being gay 'cause if you're gay enough to be bi, then you're just gay.

Being bi myself, I had to fight the urge to tell her (black woman) that I didn't believe in bi-racial people, if you're even partly black, you're just black, not bi. Sadly, I don't think she would've gotten the irony.

My favorite is:

Mr. or Ms. I'm going to assume your religion, family background and the type of relationship you are in because you are white and middle class like me Look, just because you think I'm just like you and share your beliefs doesn't mean I do. Believe it or not, I'm one of those people that you've complained about, I just don't happen to call you on anything but your attitude about immigrants.

Ms/Mr. when asked how are you today...says fine in such a voice and with a wan smile that you know yeah she or he is not really fine.

You're the reason I've stopped asking that question and instead settle for a polite crisp good morning as I make my way to my desk at the start of the day. It's working well for me so far too.

Mr./Ms. Woe is me the people who automatically jump to the conclusion that they were the ones who did something wrong at work if an error is being discussed, and that if anything bad happens it would happen to them. One of my co-workers is really starting to get on my nerves with this.

Today, I'm particularly fond of

The upstairs neighbour with the creaky bed and the loud girlfriend
I want him dead. Or neutered. I don't really care which, just as long as he never wakes me at 3.30 AM anymore.

Mr. I'm old, so I can make inappropriate comments about young women's bodies and if they're offended I'll tell them it was just a compliment.
I would never hit an old man, but this type makes that very difficult.

And let us not forget Ms. My Cellphone Is MUCH More Urgent Than Speaking To A Mere Customer Other Than To Announce The Total. A cashier at a mini-mart near my apartment does this, which is why I nearly never go there anymore (and used to be in several times a week). She's so busy on her phone calls that I definitely get the impression I'm rudely interrupting something *important* by wanting to actually make a purchase.

There ARE other markets in reasonable range, hers is not my only option.

Agree totally, its one of my pet hates too. A few weeks ago I was in work, and a song came on the in-store radio. My colleage expressed his dislike of this song, I replied that I actually liked it. His response was to state, as a matter of fact, that the song was 'shite' and that I must be strange. I mean, I can take a joke but this annoyed me - I don't appreciate being called 'strange' because my tastes happen to differ to someone elses. His tone of voice suggested that he was genuinely offended that my opinion was different to his. [Confused]

It's not the only example from him I could give but this is the one that stands out most.

Another one from me (I've been awfully hate-filled lately, haven't I? [Razz] ) :

Mr. or Ms. "OMG You're A LIBERAL?!" (said with the utmost disgust and shock), and also Mr. or Ms. "Democrat/Liberal Is A Bad Word, So I'm Going To Call You One In A Tone Of Voice That Implies It Is The Highest Level Of Insult." [Roll Eyes] Um, yes I am a liberal/Democrat, just as you are a conservative/Republican...last I checked, it's perfectly within my rights to belong to the political party of my choice and hold the views that I believe in, even if - and I know this may come as a shock to some of you - EVEN IF they are (gasp) different from yours. I don't harrass you or imply that you're a bad person because of your political beliefs, so will you PLEASE quit acting shocked and scandalized about mine? Geez.

(I'm sure there are Democrats who treat Republicans this way too, but I have yet to encounter any, and so I'm just basing this off my personal experience. [Wink] And it has definitely happened more than a few times to me.)

I do my grocery shopping at 1 a.m. when there are usually maybe 6 cars in the parking lot and you can almost ALWAYS park in one of the spaces closest to the door. And still people park in the fire lane.

I saw a police officer writing one of those bozos a ticket one time, and it was difficult to resist the impulse to give him a big, wet kiss (but he looked sorta unfriendly, so I didn't even say thanks).

To although I have a green left-turn arrow and all traffic at the intersection is stopped, I will take my sweet, sweet time negotiating the turn, slowing waaaay down in the middle in case my car might tip over from my blistering speed: you are not the only driver on the road!! It is rude and inconsiderate to use half of the green light for ONE CAR!

I get this all the time here at good old Super Conservative Christian University. In my E-Commerce class last week, the teacher said we could have five bonus points if we showed the class a website we've made (including blogs, etc). So I showed the class my Xanga, and my profile pic is a copy of a sticker I have that says, "Oh well, I wasn't using my civil liberties anyhow." One guy said, "Yeah, you would be a liberal" as if this were the most insulting thing he could possibly say. I replied "I sure am! And I'm also a *gasp* Christian!" And he responded "We'll just let God be the judge of that." Completely serious, too.

A few more:

Mr. or Ms. I can't possibly be bothered to stay aware of what's happening around me, so I hope you'll forgive me if I run straight into you for no apparent reason.
Four times at the mall today.

Ms. (it's always a woman) Oh look you have a baby so I'm going to reach down and put my fingers in his face and spend ages cooing over him because you couldn't possibly be trying to go somewhere.

If you don't want to cause a scene by asking to speak to a manager at that time, call up the store after you get home, tell him/her the problem and what time you were in (and the cashier's name if you know it, or what lane # you were in). Usually, managers (especially from the larger stores) appreciate knowing when the cashiers are doing this (they never seem to do it when the managers are actually WATCHING them, at least in my experience.

When I was in college, we had an apartment of guys like that. So, on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, we girls (after the first weekend we did it, other apartments would often join in) would put on our rubber gloves and pick it all up and pile it in front of their door, with a note taped to the door that said "Your party, your mess." They were constantly running into the pyramid when they tried to come out their door (on good days, we managed to pile it such that the trash tumbled INTO their apartment as soon as the door opened [Eek!] ). Parents' Weekend is a few weeks into school. After that weekend, they mysteriously STOPPED leaving their messes in the hall -- things were cleaned up by noon of the next day. Which we considered a reasonable hour, so no further action was required. [Big Grin]

Just a suggestion.... [Wink]

I’ve just spent half an hour trying to think of a decent comeback, but all I can really say is: Cleaning coffee off the keyboard and monitor. That’s three mornings in a row I’ve had to do that because of this board. [Big Grin]


And to add:

Mr ‘ This random subject completely fascinates me so I’m going to harp on about it for the next half hour, ignoring your bored looks and any attempts to change the subject’

SO & myself are addicted to Hold Em poker. I limit myself to discussing it with an equally addicted friend, SO spent near on 45 minutes telling his parents why it’s so wonderful. When the phrase ‘a great way to study human interactions and the way others influence our decisions’ is used, it’s time to… well we all just stared at him in shock.


And Ms ‘Not only do I have shallow values by which I judge your value as a person, but if you don’t measure up, you are obviously inferior to me. Oh and I have to be the first to achieve them or else I’ll bad mouth you till the cows come home.’

Her values: Full time job, mortgage, planning a wedding with hopes of a honeymoon conception. In that order.

Get pregnant unexpectedly? She did it for government hand outs/to trap him.
Working part time/casual/not at all? Too lazy to work full time.
Get engaged when you & partner have been together less time than her & her fiancée? She trapped him into it. He’s only in it for the sex/money. They barely know each other, it’ll never last.

So many people are hung up on achievements. What did you do today? What are you planning? Sometimes, just getting through the day is an achievement in itself.

How can we forget Mr "I'll wait in line for ten minutes at a fast food restaraunt letting my mind wander, and only begin looking at the menu when it's actually my turn to order, making an excrutiatingly slow decision and delaying everyone behind me for another ten minutes."

He can also be found in the drive-through.

Do you make exceptions for those of us who are too nearsighted to read the menu until we reach the counter?

And then there's my husband, who unfortunately is Mr. I order the same damn thing every time we come here, but I'm still going to spend five minutes contemplating once we get to the counter, because hey, this might be the one time I decide to try something new... nope, my usual, please.
Honestly, it's embarassing.

Mr. I'm going to where dark clothes in the middle of the night and jaywalk on an unlit street, then flip you off when you tap your horn at me because you almost hit me.

Two of them on my way home from work last night, one on a road where the speed limit was 50 MPH.

I'll see that and raise you Mr. What's A Bicycle Light? I've nearly hit a few too many of these bozos in dark clothes at night in not-well-lit areas.

Ran into this one today.

Mr cashier who won't give me a bag for my books because I'm not a hot young co-ed, even though I bought more books than they did.

Asked for the manager, got a smirk, and a 'he's on vacation now, can I help you?'

No you can't you ****er, you're the ****ing problem.

I'll be stopping in when the owner is there, mostly to let him know I will no longer be shopping at a store which has such bigoted personnel.

Too bad, too, because I buy 2-300 worth of stuff there a year. Guess I'll be taking my business across the street.

This is when you say, "Sure! Can I touch yours?"

And when they get a bit freaked out, you look confused and say, "I'm sorry, I don't think I understand this game."
